Iapetus was one of the Titan gods, son of Uranus and Gaea. Led by Cronus, Iapetus and his brothers conspire againrt their father, preparing an ambush for him as he descended to lie with Gaea (earth). Crius, Coeus, Hyperion, and Iapetus were posted at four corner of the world where they seized hold of Uranus (sky) and held him firm, while Cronus, hidden in the centre, castrated Uranus with a sickle. 

Iapetus also have been regarded as the Titan god of the mortal life span. Iapetus married Asia, the daughter of his brother Oceanus and became by her father of Atlas, Prometheus, Epimetheus, and Menaetius. Other tradition call the wife of Iapetus Clymene, daugiter of Oceanus.
